My “Pouchie” Faith

I have gone back and forth a while now on whether or not to tell this story but with Warrior’s birthday a few days away, it’s time to share it with you. Let’s back up a few years with an episode of “The Goldbergs.” Adam Goldberg was a huge Ultimate Warrior fan and they have referenced wrestling a few times on the show. I love this show since the 80’s were a coming of age decade for me and am so glad Dana loves it too.

The beginning of an episode had the character of Adam dancing and lip syncing in his bedroom to the song “Faith” by George Michael. Good thing I didn’t go upstairs then to say goodnight to my daughter or would’ve missed the whole thing! Am sure most of you know the lyrics and this was the very beginning of the song. In the background on his shelves were The Ultimate Warrior and “Macho Man” Randy Savage wrestling buddy dolls! I will always picture that scene every time I hear “Faith” and still do. Warrior and Randy together again for a memory of mine.

Fast forward a few years to just a couple of months ago. I had been thinking of a way to get my book to Dana even though it was a long shot but the thought remained. I was driving home from my hair appointment and turned on the radio. The song playing was “Faith” by George Michael. I smiled and sang along like I always do. It was then that I noticed this car’s license plate stopped next to me at a light. The plate said “POUCHIE” and I thought of Dana.

Warrior had called her “poochie” and she has mentioned this periodically. He even acknowledged her in the crowd as “pooch” during his HOF speech. It was spelled differently but I still noticed. Then, I started saying “pouchie faith” just for fun since I always believe! It could’ve been “pouchy” with its pronunciation but to me, it was “poochie!”

The next few weeks “pouchie faith” stayed in my head whether or not I heard “Faith” on the radio. A month or so later, Dana started her podcast “Total WARRIORS.” As previous readers know, I called in and was able to speak with her. That was my “pouchie faith” revealing itself to me. Not “poochie” or getting my book to her, but I’ll take it!

Let’s look at this from another angle I have said before. It’s so much fun with a group of threes whether you think like a three count or spiritually. It’s been magical and I can attest to that. The wrestling buddy doll, ( again!) the song “Faith,” and a license plate (again!) I can’t forget “The Goldbergs” which started it all lining up.

You can have your “faith” however it works for you whether it’s a show, song, or license plate. Whatever way you choose, just believe and those signs will appear. I wasn’t too sure about this post as it concerns a term of endearment Warrior used for Dana but she has been very open with it so now it’s my turn.

I know the Warrior Girls will remember Warrior this Sat. the 16th in the best way that works for them and I will too. ❤️ He will be with his “poochie” and girls while sending them all his love. I am continually humbled and grateful for all the opportunities I have been given sharing my Warrior moments, even though some are extremely personal. Like he said: “ the right story is the full story…”

Share yours since you never know who might be reading, listening, or becoming impacted. I am forever thankful Warrior shared his, Dana is sharing hers, and now I can share mine. Get that “Faith” and keep it!

P.S. I recently took my first Zumba class and the instructor’s name was Dana. She played the song “Faith” by George Michael. I REALLY had to keep it together without laughing!!! 😳😂

~~~ Happy Birthday Warrior 💪🏻🌻⚡️🌟🎈💖🙏🏻✍🏻 ~~ I am that storyteller keeping your legacy alive…

The Wedding Near Smoothie King

Would I fool you warrior fans if you didn’t notice that photo of this other Smoothie King place? Well, I wasn’t in New Orleans but did recently attend a family wedding out of town and noticed that shop. We don’t have those Smoothie Kings by us so boy, did I smile at that sign! It sits directly across the church where the wedding took place so my heart filled with love for all the Warrior family. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Sometimes, I get social anxiety at these events where so many are present and catching up is great but can be awkward too. My meditation was a little longer that morning as I brought along my pink rose quartz for extra love. The card I drew that day was the Heart Chakra and I must say– it was perfect! I also read the additional meanings and once again, a moment floored me. This was a new card I hadn’t gotten before and a line in the extra part reads: ” A departed loved one who passed from a heart condition is saying hello, I love you. Have a heart-to-heart discussion.” Oh yes, everyday… a few tears here but then I just let it all go and decided to be that warrior the man himself knows me to be.

Later on, we all went to a restaurant between the wedding and reception start time. I had a wonderful conversation with my husband’s cousin’s wife and had no idea of her spiritual gifts as well. She had bought my book and asked me how things were going. Time just flew by as she related her psychic experiences and by sharing my story, it enabled her to open up with others and now to me. I never would’ve guessed this about her and she seemed open to meditation, Hay House radio, and other topics. I was so overjoyed with hearing her stories while feeling validated that mine were educating.

My husband’s sister-in-law recently visited New Mexico with her husband and was in Las Cruces. She actually remembered how Dana lives in Santa Fe and discussed her podcast! Another moment of joy and glee I wasn’t expecting to discuss at all!!! Luckily, this all happened after the wedding or I would’ve been distracted for sure!

What a great week that really turned out to be starting with meeting the woman who won a free copy of my book Spirit and Belief at my recent Holistic Fair. She gave me names of new contacts and we might attend some events together. Her name is Kathy just like mine and she even lives on my street! It has become so synchronistic lately, my heart chakra really is open. ~~ You can look up chakras if you aren’t familiar with them but I have a blog post on this subject at spiritandbelief. It’s about making sense of those seven chakras.

Even though I don’t have a Smoothie King Center story, the Smoothie King shop is my story for that day. I didn’t have that stage like the Warrior family but I have my stage where connections are made all the time. I should’ve gotten a smoothie but I’ll take the people any day..,

Lights on… Lights off…

The basement is where I do some of my workout five days a week with lots of cardio. This light shines behind me as I step along to Pandora while on the elliptical machine. There is another light above my husband’s workout bench and I’ve used that one sometimes but it’s too much of a spotlight on me. I’ve had some flickering lights happen before and that little story is in my book Spirit and Belief. This light, however; did something different.

Several months ago while jamming along to some of my favorite 80’s tunes, it just went out. Oh no! I was in the dark and couldn’t really see the machine. Really though– with all the other types of signs I’d had these past few years, how could I doubt? I just kept going while giggling to myself at this new “sign” I’d received. It did come back on before I left so this got me intrigued.

The logical me did check the bulb like anyone else would. I tapped it a few times and no flickering so it wasn’t starting to wear out. It wasn’t loose either. I knew this was spirit energy working with me. Could Warrior have sent his energy messing with me in a good way? It is extremely possible considering my journey so far. I know what all you very rational people are thinking and no– I am not naive or believe everything is him. You always have to ask questions with specifics and rule stuff out.

This was the first time a light had entirely gone out so no flickering this time and I had to cover all the bases ( or four corners of the ring!) Sometimes, my eyes are closed since I really try to connect with the music without distractions and the light goes out. I open my eyes and am surprised in a goofy yet grateful way. This is not a regular occurrence but electricity is very easy for spirits to manipulate and not to be feared.

I realize this can be a different type of subject for those not familiar but if you know me, I have never been afraid but very open-minded. This light going out was not my first encounter with signs obviously and based on what I was doing, it worked for me. Dana had mentioned the “Daddy lights” flickering in their old house and I never forgot that. The music connects too and I want so badly to remember a certain song playing but I just can’t! It did relate to Warrior in a big way and I knew right away.

Here’s some of that humor many maybe thought he lacked. This incident I do remember for a few reasons. It was Friday, April 13th and I really didn’t think much about it. Ok, maybe a little but not a thought with the light involved. Friday the 13th and a full moon! Oh boy, what could this mean? Animals and kids act a little nutty but nothing personal with me much, maybe I’m lucky??? 😬🤪 I was halfway done in the basement that day went the light went out again. It hadn’t in a while and I never put the details together until later. It’s not directly connected to Friday the 13th and a full moon as you might think.

That date is also when the Undertaker put the Ultimate Warrior in a casket on the Funeral Parlor back in 1991. I never remembered that date exactly until owning The Ultimate Collection DVD but the event was never forgotten in my mind!!! I was so affected by that and hated every minute of it. Glad to hear they were friends but oh, the horror to me and those crazy emotions!!! 😡😳

I do believe Warrior’s energy made that light go out— especially on that date of Friday, April 13th and a full moon. 🌕 HA-HA, very funny Warrior making me remember that awful experience! I knew that was in April but did have to check just to be sure. The songs do sometimes match up but not always and that’s ok. I always validate since he is taking the time connecting to me doing something he built his whole adult life upon. Some might think I am crazy and you are entitled to that.

I’m just here sharing and educating you on my experiences just in case any can relate. Also, if you think it’s super cool and very ultimate, you’re my kind of person! Even if you don’t, I thank you for having an open mind to anything on your journey.

I always remember that humor works, a person’s energy is the same in spirit, and that whole celebrity thing doesn’t matter! I never doubted these types of signs but just me receiving them. It’s different now and sometimes when I do ask for something, it happens! So many times this works and I am always so humbled.

Who knows what that light will do next but this warrior girl feels the energy and knows the signs. Let’s not forget the goosebumps but this isn’t about that… One time I even said: “Hey, I need the light back on before I go up so the switch doesn’t get messed up!” I reached for the chain and before pulling, it came back on (:

No other light in the house has entirely gone out but during my time alone in the basement, it does…

The Feather Box

I wanted to share this story since it concerns my feather collection but also involves following a vision. It doesn’t really connect to Warrior but hey– ya never know! All these smaller events brought the bigger ones and this one follows that pattern. “Finding Feathers” was a previous post shortly after I started this blog and the full story is told in the chapter “Out of the Blue” ( or is it Red?) in Spirit and Belief.

Once I had discovered many feathers, they just didn’t all seem to fit in my little ziplock bag anymore or even a big bag! I thought a box would work to display them nicely. My mind actually visualized the type of box I wanted but also thought of the type I didn’t want. Wooden- yes, kid-like, no. Nothing too ornate but not overly simple that required decorating.

For all you online shoppers out there, am sure you’d just get something from Amazon or e-bay right? I do some shopping that way but personal stuff– nah, can’t do it. This is just like the sign story a few posts ago and that candle lantern with those warrior batteries. Can’t say I would’ve had those same experiences with online shopping. Yes, it’s convenient and works well but not for my stories!

I did go to some stores a few years ago and nothing really appealed to me so the thought waned. The vision was still there in the back of my mind but it wasn’t like a mission or anything. If I found something I loved, great. If I didn’t, it would wait. Maybe that is what I needed to do this time around instead of shopping like an ultimate maniac! The sign I found right away, the lantern had me all over the place, (but VERY worth it!) and the box had me in between.

I went to this home goods store without being overly concerned with finding the “perfect feather box.” By being casual and calm, I noticed some that interested me. This box was perfect and actually had feathers on it– what are the odds? 😉 I love the hearts too. The one thing that bothered me was its size. It was way too big for the space I needed to display and wouldn’t fit. I looked on the shelf and they all seemed the same. It was so perfect and I knew it would work somehow.

Before leaving the aisle, I moved some aside and there was this exact box– only smaller. Word to the wise is always move items aside to search thru everything. I’m not saying wreck shelves or anything but we’ve all had that happen before. Clothes are the worst with a size listed on a hanger and a different one on the fabric– ugh! 😳

Well, I found my new feather box only after thinking more calmly, not becoming too attached, and searching a shelf carefully. I just realized how these three stories are similar when I really hadn’t noticed before. Here’s those signs again in a group of three. The lantern, word sign, and feather box with very different shopping experiences.

Don’t become a shopaholic and don’t become an online shopaholic either. A mix of both is fine. My intuition and the Universe or my spirit team nudged me with all three of these items just like it does for you everyday. Think hard, I bet you can remember times that “signs” happened and it worked! Patience is one of the many lessons I am learning on this journey as evidenced with my shopping experiences. We all need patience and if we practice, it will come. Let’s share our experiences together! Follow my new spiritual blog at: www.spiritandbelief.com

“Live Strong, Act Bold, Be Brave…”

Here we go again with yet another story I have never told but became part of my life a few years ago. It really connects with that incredible year of 2016 and still resonates today with what I notice. I’ve mentioned decorating with the candle lantern in The Mysterious Batteries story and this experience is very similar with that timeline.

I wanted more things around my house with words or inspiration besides artwork, photos, and nature pictures. A shopping trip was upon me and I became entranced with all the great quotes in frames hanging above me in the store. There were so many and I read each one as tears began to well-up in my eyes. Not to worry– I wasn’t grieving Warrior in that way anymore but really contemplating all the spiritual happenings going on for me then. Every sign and their messages jumped out at me and it became an impossible task deciding which one to pick.

I finally chose the sign you see and loved the big words with HEART, LIFE, and IMAGINED. Being black and white meant it could go anywhere in my house so a bonus for me! It remained on top of my bookshelf until recently when I decided to move it entirely. The cat influenced this decision with her mischievous antics but what a difference moving items makes sometimes. Am loving its new spot and how I read it everyday.

After these last few years of reading Dana’s blog, she began saying more of Warrior’s quotes besides “always believe.” I started making that affirmation part of my daily meditation. It states: “Live Strong, Act Bold, Be Brave. Nothing is too hard to do.” I added because I always believe at the end so it works for me! I had been saying this for months and it became a huge part of believing in myself more and more. 💪🏻🙏🏻❤️

One day I had passed the sign and really stopped to look at it. This was a few months ago so kinda recent since the sign’s been up a few years. It hit me then once I put it all together. Three words are on this sign that are part of Warrior’s quote– bold, brave, and strong. Sure, not in the right order but still there and again– unreal to me. I had never noticed them before that day and only after I had used them for months during my meditation.

Maybe my intuition slammed me that day in the store so I’d buy this sign! Maybe also I had to wait in order to really connect those words with my life today. Maybe a few years ago, I wasn’t ready to really feel the power without all the emotion.

I have another story with words in The Falling Signs and the batteries and signs are all in my book Spirit and Belief. For all you naysayers– no, I didn’t buy the sign noticing Warrior’s words and no, I don’t go looking for connections. They find me because of my life and purpose. Synchronicity is a huge aspect of everyone’s existence if we really take the time to notice and believe.

Whether or not Warrior was guiding me that day, it makes no difference. It is always the feeling in your heart that matters most. The Universe is a team effort and if he was leading the team, how Ultimate!

I believe always he notices anything that inspires us warriors to honor ourselves and our life’s journey. My life is constantly guided by his other quotes about “it’s not the destination, it’s the journey.” My favorite is “Do The Work” since I hear this from many people in my path all the time. (also in my book!)

My sign will remain in my life with those words that remain in my heart everyday just like signs should for you. Be the best you can be with whatever the Universe shows since that’s what warriors do.

Three License Plates

All of a sudden in my memory bank, other Warrior related stories seem to be popping up for me! I mention license plates being a sign with after death communication in my book Spirit and Belief. These three were obviously not as relevant to all the other signs I got at the time but wanted to share with you fans.

The first license plate story happened a few years ago when I needed some things at Target. I pulled into the parking lot and proceeded to find a spot. Another parking lot experience like the dime in the rain!

When I stopped the van, I saw this car in front of me with a license plate frame that said Stamford, CT. Had never seen a frame reference but really, what are the odds? I see Connecticut plenty but not Stamford where WWE is located. I just smiled and thought how cool considering all the other little experiences with that time.

The second license plate I saw when going to church. I was in the back entrance parking lot and it was a very narrow road so speed bumps slow you down. While driving on one side, this woman passed me on the other. I laughed at her plate to myself which read GHOST 7. Of course, I prefer the word spirit and Warrior does have 7 letters so it connected for me. 😆 I never saw messages on plates or noticed them at all really so when I do, it fills my heart with all kinds of emotions. I had the state names and not numbers and letters. It seems also that parking lots showed me a few signs! 🚙

The third plate really resonated with me the most and also made me laugh the most! Oh my, did I talk to Warrior much after this one! We were driving back from some errands one night and stopped at a light with a four way intersection. 🚦I had the radio on as usual and my husband proceeded to get in the left turning lane that would take us one road away from our street. Believe me when I say being in the right place and time affects you and your reaction matters. This car was across the road from us also waiting for the green light to continue. I could see a vanity plate that read JAMES H. I really do have to control my laughter sometimes!! 😂😮

As we waited for the light, I tried to convince myself that the plate read JAMES R. instead. That’s almost similar, right? Once the light turned and we moved closer, the plate was clearly visible as JAMES H. I couldn’t wait to get home and laugh more out loud in another room! I said goodbye to JAMES H. and then really had to address Mr. Warrior……

Here’s my simulated conversation with him in my head:

ME: “So, what’s going on James H.?”

WARRIOR: “That’s not my name, I’m not listening!”

ME: “What else am I going to notice today James H.?” ( getting goosebumps and laughing)

WARRIOR: ” I don’t know who that guy was, you’re not seeing anything else unless you talk to me as Warrior.” ( hopefully full of humor and not swearing!)

It was quite an amusing scenario and guess what? Spirits want you to laugh when you notice things and have fun with it! No idea where JAMES H. was going but I certainly had some fun with his license plate that night.

So, there ya go. My three license plate stories that put a smile on my face at very different times. Just go about your life and see what you can find. If you have some “funny” sign stories to share, please do! Who knows if I’ll see others sometime…

Finding Coins

Four years ago today the Ultimate Warrior was inducted into the WWE HOF so I wanted to share this excerpt from my book Spirit and Belief. I just love how the quarter story connects his home state, oldest daughter’s name, and younger daughter’s birth year. A three count yet again!

My daughter found this quarter at our trip to South Dakota randomly on the ground a few years ago. She gave it to me and I actually said: “Nooo!” People turned to look. Oops, didn’t realize I said that out loud. She wondered why I said no (although comically of course) but I told her it was too bad Ohio wasn’t the state listed where we live. Little did she know Mama had a bunch of signs coming already connected to Mr. Warrior. I blogged about our trip in the past and you can find the whole story in my book!

Why did my daughter give me that quarter? Even if she didn’t want it, what made her give it to me and not just put it back on the ground? Yes, I always ask questions but even with my development, I somehow knew the answers.

I can’t believe the year 1996 on the dime was so visible to me in the pouring rain! By the time I unloaded my groceries from the cart to my van, water soaked all through me. I needed to walk fast to get inside so no time to notice a dime, right? The light from the driver’s side door shone right on that dime for me to see it. Heck, I was already drenched but for a second or two, time seemed to stop so I could pick it up. ☂️💦

Coins have value and to find a quarter– well, that’s bigger than those pennies, nickels, and dimes! Half-dollars are rare so no mention of them. If I hadn’t gotten many acts of synchronicities prior to these coins, they would mean nothing to me. For most, they probably don’t. All of my experiences relating to Warrior were very consistent and happened around the same time frame.

Sure, these coins were probably dropped but it is the act of noticing and the feeling attached that makes it real for you. Maybe we don’t look at coins the same anymore like finding those lucky pennies as a child. When signs appear and you believe, the Universe is at work in your life.

If you are interested in finding out more about my experiences with Warrior in spirit, visit my website at: www.spiritandbelief.com for all the info on the book and my new spiritual blog. I also have a page where you can now Work with Me to answer any questions you might have.

Find those answers you need and trust that the guidance received is real. It was and is for me since I always believe!
